"Flashlights" marks the return of Joshua Ledet to the music world and the space that he calls home, the stage. Known for his soaring, church-bred brand of old-school soul music, Joshua is ready to introduce fans to a new chapter of his musical journey.
"The inspiration behind Flashlights would be the relationship between my mother and father. Watching them live happily-ever-after and knowing that they have been together since their teens. It's a true story of love and commitment and that is what the song is about," mentions Joshua.
Joshua Ledet is a highly gifted singer, songwriter and performer, who possesses a soulfully thunderous voice, that is unmistakably bred from a bluesy and down-home church tradition. And yet, such effortless vocals hail from a young man who is only in his 20's. Joshua has rocked the pews of churches, mesmerized American Idol audiences, and sang for dignitaries such as the President and First Lady of the United States.
Joshua knew early in life that music was a gift bestowed upon him. Born in Westlake, Louisiana, Joshua was the youngest of 8 children. They were a very musical family. Not only was Joshua inspired by his mother who too was a singer, he grew up as a fan of Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, Stevie Wonder, and even country music.
"Flashlights" was written by Joshua Ledet, Stefan Schonewille and Justin deVries and produced by Claude Villani and Pacific.
